Sir’Jabari Rice announced his transfer to Texas on Tuesday, giving the Longhorns one of the top guards in the Western Athletic Conference next season.
Rice is coming off a season in which he averaged 11.9 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game for the Aggies, who won the WAC Tournament title and a first-round NCAA Tournament game. Rice has been a first-team and second-team All-WAC selection in his career.
Rice’s announcement came via social media.
His announcement came on the same day that Texas guard Devin Askew announced his transfer from Texas, a year after transferring to Texas from Kentucky. The Longhorns also lost guard Courtney Ramey to the transfer portal last month.
